The Writings of Alexander Molyneaux:

Foreword


    The Fire of Portsmouth - July 25, 1892 >>









Alexander Molyneaux was born on the 17-th of March, in the year 1858. In the townland of Ballgowan. In the county of Down Ireland, on a small farm. One of Lord Earls Kilmorey estates, known as the barrentry of Moran.

The house was built of stone and slate. Roof, the first of its kind in that townland. The beautiful sheet of water, called Carlingford, louch flowed within one furlong of the house at high tide. And ships from all parts of the world, by times running in for shelter when the wind was not favorable. The louch is twenty miles long and at low tide there are parts of the channel not more than two hundred feet wide. But there is a hundred feet of water at low tide, and it widens to three miles up towards a town called Newary, and affords anchorage for thousands of ships, from all nations.
